Can people please give me opinion is this close to harvest?
wait for the hairs to change to a bit of a darker color, about another week i’d say
Another week or 2, Try and invest in something to look at the trichs. this will ensure your harvesting at the correct time. The hairs turning brown/red/orange are a good indicator of maturity but do not really tell you when it is peak time to harvest. jewellers loup or usb microscope from ebay are even better.
Any more info on the grow?
Based on the pics I'd say 2-3 weeks and see where you're at.
Hairs are a dead giveaway. 2 more weeks at least, more likely 3. Hairs will darken and appear to recede as the buds swell.
As posted numerous times before. There is no better investment than one of those $11 jewellers loops off from eBay. Reading the tricks is the way to go.
Ill try and get some good pics, strain is jacked up btw
I actually just got a jewelers loop, what am i looking for to know its done?
You want to look at the trichomes. The ones that look similar in shape to a mushroom. Look on the sugar leafs and around bud sites.
At this point the majority of them will be clear. As they mature and get more potent they turn cloudy and then amber. People have different harvest points they prefer. Mostly cloudy with 10 or 20% amber is what i shoot for and as the percentage of amber goes up you move toward more of a mellow body buzz.
It's impossible to get 100% cloudy or 100% amber. If you see trichs starting to turn dark grey or black the window is closing and you need to chop it.
